An exclusive Shag print and book set released at the C2E2 convention in Chicago April 16-18 2010.
The print is a 12 x 9 inch, 3-color screen print produced in an edition of 99 signed and numbered pieces. The print is laid into an unsigned copy of "Autumn's Come Undone."
The book has 29 new paintings by Shag nicely reproduced in a 13" x 9.75" hardcover.
For the past decade, Shag's has wowed the contemporary art world visual celebrations of life's pleasures and indulgences. His work is instantly recognizable for its trademark combination of sly humor and vibrant colors. Until now... Something's come undone.
The intimate moments that have made Shag famous have been replaced by epic tableaus. Richly hued designer environments have given way to subtly desaturated expanses. Characters who were once grounded in mid-century formality are teetering on the brink of chaos.
This collection of new work showcases the largest, darkest and most thought provoking images Shag has ever created. The art is distinctly Shag, but it's painted in shades of black humor.
